La caféothèque de Paris

I went to this cafe with another couch surfer who stayed with the same host with me.

I was so lucky to be able to enjoy sunny Paris in early Autumn.

More homebake: Banana sourdough toast + bagel

I've always love to make banana toast.
So whenever I bought banana, I'll try to eat it with bread.
And this time is with my own bake sourdough.

Bagel is another thing I love.
I baked many rounds of bagels so far but I'm still feeling enthusiastic about it. :)

Food For Thought, Neal St

I don't really remember where did I get the info of Food For Thought (either TripAdvisor or HappyCow), but I'm glad I found it.

I was there just minutes before noon, but there's already a bee line for dining in.

The kitchen is at the ground floor, with a small dining area too.
The basement is the main serving and dining area. People starts queuing at the staircase,  makes order and pay then go to the table.

There are choices of hot dish and salad. They label which one is vegan/gluten-free too. 

One salad + one hot dish.
All I could say is "yummy!"

So I came here for the second time, a day before I left London for Paris.

It's around 4-5pm but still in queue.

I had quiche and soup this time.
Still delicious.

Oh I miss this place already~

London, United Kingdom.
Mon to Sat 12pm to 8pm
Sun 12pm to 5pm

Nude Coffee Roasters, Brick Lane

Another cafe to visit in London, Nude Espresso.

Nude Espresso was very packed, so I went to the opposite -Nude Coffee Roasters.

It's almost full too. 
But since they have big communal tables, it's quite easy for one person to fit in.

I enjoyed the coffee very much. :)

I bought a bag of bean from them too.

26 Hanbury Street

Strangers at 47, Seksyen 17

I made a visit here with Elaine for brunch a few months ago.

They specialize in crepes, both sweet and savoury ones.

We had one sweet -Purple Rage, and the savoury -Lethal Shrooms.
Both were tasty, I especially like the Japanese sweet potato one.

But they weren't to fill your tummy as brunch, it's fine as dessert though. ;)

47, Jalan 17/45, 
46400 Petaling Jaya. 

11am to 10pm everyday except Tuesdays

Soy milk bread & cinnamon roll

I challenged myself to bake 2 types of bread yesterday.

 I used soy milk to replace water, as a result the bread is softer inside.
I sprinkled chopped fresh rosemary and kosher salt on top.
It's prettier that way. :)

I made bigger cinnamon roll this time.
All bread using sourdough and I let them 'grow' for longer time.

I'm still at the stage of experimenting and it's fun!

Mizuiro -ramen & coffee

A rather new eatery in Bandar Menjalara, Mizuiro.
They have a Scandinavian style of interior, clean and bright.

Coffee counter.
I didn't try the coffee this round.

 Lunch set -spicy ramen + hot ocha, RM12.
The soup was good, but the homemade ramen was not my favourite type.
It's a bit rubbery. I guess it's because they're using rye flour (with unbleached french flour) that makes the noodles denser.
However, it's just my preference. There will be people who likes this type of noodles somehow.
Still kudos for their effort to produce healthier food.

Ode Art Cafe, SS15

If you're familiar with SS15 area, you will know that you could easily walk into cafes every street.

But having so many cafes doesn't mean they are all good cafes.

Well, I used to search on Foursquare whenever I'm out of idea where to go in one place.
So I've decided to do that again to read reviews for a lunch meet up with JY.
I found Ode Art Cafe which they have rather good reviews overall.

 A heartwarming space filled with art works and the fragrance of coffee.

 Black coffee on palette-turns-table.

I had mushroom sandwich.
The bread was nice! I suspected it's ciabata from Carpenter's Daughter, but I didn't find out if my guess was right.


No.112, First Floor, 
Jalan SS15/4B
Subang Jaya.
Tel: 03-5612 0800

For now, their opening hour 10am to 10pm, Tuesday to Sunday. 

 Well, good news for some of you, they will serve breakfast earlier soon!

Homecook: beetroot curry

A friend of sis gave us organic green curry paste that she bought from Thailand.

Sis put in potato, carrot, cabbage, tempeh and beetroot. Also fresh basil leaves from our garden.
Anything cooked with beetroot will sure turn out red colour.
So our green curry became red curry, haha!

Nonetheless, it was delicious!
